Caluzzi Bar & Cabaret

Glamorous and legendary, Caluzzi is K-Road’s hub for flamboyance, big-haired drag queens in stilettos, and bright, shiny cabaret. Great for functions, birthdays and bachelor parties, Caluzzi holds cabaret performances full of fun, laughter and, most importantly, sequins. Come down for a delicious dinner and an incredible show.

The Eagle Bar

Another bar on K-road, Auckland’s gay quarter, the Eagle Bar is a relaxed place to have a drink at the start or the end of the night. Cosy seats and friendly staff make this bar a great place for after-work drinks as well as a good stop for birthdays and bachelor parties. With themed nights and a comprehensive jukebox, you can find good cocktails and cheap drinks, ideal for a great night.
